West Seattle food drives: Bankers Care; Scouting for Food

Two ways to help fight hunger, through food drives this month:

WASHINGTON FEDERAL FOOD DRIVE: The photo shows Lisa Raymond setting up the food-collection spot at Washington Federal‘s Dakota/California branch north of The Junction. There and in Morgan Junction, they are part of the “Bankers Care” food drive through April 5th, collecting food for Northwest Harvest, which supplies local food banks. Just bring in non-perishable food to donate.

And tomorrow – watch for a notice on your door, about a different food drive:

SCOUTING FOR FOOD: West Seattle’s Troop 282 sends word that they and other Scouts “will be dropping off door tags to homes in the West Seattle area this Saturday, March 23rd, 8:30-10:30 am. They will come back the following Saturday, March 30th to collect food for the West Seattle Food Bank, 9 am-11 am. If you would like to donate and need a pick up, contact R Schulz, 206-890-2237.”

(added) Also collecting, West Seattle Boy Scout Troops and Cub Scout Packs 284, 289, 793, and 799, according to a separate notice we received, which reminds us, “Remember (that food bank) donations made in March will go further because of the Feinstein Challenge. For the 16th consecutive year, Alan Shawn Feinstein will contribute $1 Million to help end hunger. So the more you contribute to the West Seattle and White Center Food Banks, the more he will match.” (That goes for April, too; here’s our original announcement.)

And see this comment about two area supermarkets where you can donate food tomorrow!


  1. Big food drives tomorrow also sponsored by Grace Church at both the Morgan Thriftway and Burien (28th) Albertsons to benefit White Center Food Bank. Both drives from 9am until 3pm.
